A few days ago on discovery Channel, I was watching Daily Planet. There was a guy on there from a fire security company called Tyco fire and security.
He had this amazing fluid that looking exactly like water, but acted VERY different.
He calls is SAPPHIRE! (No, not from ATI) The real name of the fluid is called 3Mâ„¢ Novecâ„¢ 1230. SAPPHIRE is the system that uses the fluid.
In the demonstration, he had a tank full of this stuff. He put a working cell phone that was on in the liquid. It still work. He put a laptop in the liquid, and again, it still works, even in the liquid! He also put a monitor in it, and yes, the monitor still worked!
The liquid does not conduct electricity, but the amazing part is it does not make things wet! When you pull things out of the liquid, they are completely dry!
What's really cool about this stuff is how heat makes it react! When any sorce of heat touchs the liquid, it instantly cools down. This is why it makes such a great liquid for fire fighters. It wouldn't ruin an office building, and all they need is a little bit of this stuff. It doesn't actully touch the fire, it just cools down so much from the intense heat that it almost freezes the fire! It robs the fire of it's heat and puts it out!
There is more information about the liquid on this site:
http://www.ansul.com/en/Products/clean_ ... pphire.asp
Or check out http://www.tycofireandsecurity.com

What does this mean for the futur of PC cooling? Could you submerge an entire PC in this liquid and never have to worry about heat again?
Only time will tell that story!

This has been around for quite a while. There are many hardware sites that have already done this and ran complete systems in this liquid for days.

The only problem is dissipating the heat. If the equipment is sitting there submerged for a long period without the liquid flowing, the components overheat.

The liquid is very expensive.

If you wanna try this out yourself cheaply, all you have to do is get a bunch of vegetable oil. It works too, but very messy.

Rash is right. You'd need the liquid moving to something it could dissipate heat into (like a radiator). It's impossible for it to absorb unlimited amounts of heat before it starts to warm itself up.

What would be cool is if the whole pc was submerged in a large liquid reservoir (see through and hung on the wall) and then liquid is pumped in a loop and chiiled in a refrigeration unit.

the problem with oil is that it will degrade some parts over time rubber and some plastics are not oil resistant and eventually the oil will become rancid as well
